New World War II Street Flag Pole to be Dedicated Tuesday

COLUMBUS, GA - Thirty youngsters lined up Tuesday morning to take a pledge of honor on the first day of Summer Camp Benning at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center.

An active duty Soldier from the Warrior Transition Unit led them through the pledge.

This week will be filled with such meaningful activities for the day campers. Each day will be devoted to a different time in Infantry history and will include period crafts, reenactments and even historical snacks.

The camp will have two more sessions this summer, beginning July 5 and July 19. Each camp runs for five half-days and includes lunch.

On Tuesday, June 22, there will be a dedication ceremony for the new flagpole on World War II Company Street. The flagpole is a gift from the Daughters of the United States Army (DUSA), an organization that has been a major supporter of the museum.

For  more information on registering for the summer camps call (706) 685-5800 or check out  www.nationalinfantrymuseum.com.
